There's no place like home.

What are Aruba, Bermuda, Hawaii and your home town? That’s the answer—it’s like Jeopardy backwards—can you guess the clue?

Uh, places that are fabulous to visit? (Three, anyway.)

Bing, bing, bing—you win! And what was that about three? Don’t underestimate your hometown. There’s more to it than meets the eye. You just haven’t looked closely enough.
 
Go to Walkscore.com, type in your address and check out the list of all the places—parks, stores, restaurants, etc—that are within walking distance. Now’s your chance to get some exercise and go exploring. Things always look different on foot.

While you’re at it, check your town or city hall for information—i.e., a list of historic places or homes, maps of walking trails, etc. When you’re finished, you’ll know that town like the back of your hand.

Either that or you’ll want to check out the next town over.
